are these for sale?

we heard the news at 7am on our way to Zulu tuesday... definitely made Mardi Gras bittersweet this year. we went by the Mother-In-Law on our way home from the French Quarter around 6-7pm, but it was already closed, apparently for the family to have their privacy inside. but there were still tons of folks hanging 'round in the garden, with a band playing and folks sharing their shock about Miss Antoinette being gone.

and we'd just seen her in Muses a few days before. r.i.p. Miss Antoinette!
